Bobby Mair is a Canadian wunderkind fresh out of the Just for Laughs Festival. Voted Best Newcomer at the Canadian Comedy Awards he won the national Stand Up And Bite Me competition in 2011 which netted him £10k and his own half hour comedy special on CTV, Canada’s main TV channel.

Philip Simon has a twisted take on the everyday that has seen him become established as a darn fine opening act with a laconic delivery that is a joy to behold.

Compere Anthony J Brown, clad in a sartorially edifying manner, like a dapper and dandy funeral director, cuts a unique onstage presence with humour blacker than a raven that’s slammed it’s claw in a coffin lid. He is a Jongleurs/Metro Stand & Deliver Award winner and former BBC New Comedy Award Runner-up he is a regular contributor to Radio 2’s The Arthur Smith Lectures, as seen on Phoenix Nights and The Stand Up Show.

Entry is £15/14/10 for this Christmas special.

Doors open at 7.30pm for an 8pm show. Call the box office on 01246 345222.
